Scott Bolendz is a photographer of natural environments. The moody coastlines and ominous mountains featured in his FMoPA exhibition “Against the Sea/Dark Mountains” express a deeply personal photographic vision – one of both beauty and disquiet. Scott will talk about how memory, personal history, and self-identity shape his concept-based projects. His discussion will explore the transformation of dark personal experiences into expressive works of art.
